For a blind person, it must be rather difficult to imagine what a lion, a walrus or even a human skeleton – anything that you can normally only learn about from other people’s accounts – could look (be) like. Having realized this, John Alfred Charlton Deas, a former curator at Sunderland Museum, organised several handling sessions for the blind starting in 1913, first offering an invitation to the children from the Sunderland Council Blind School, to handle a few of the collections at Sunderland Museum, which was ‘eagerly accepted’. Apparently, the thing grew into a major and indeed very worthy project.
